The global Kaspersky Security Bulletin and the Global Statistics and Threats Overview, both the reports are based on data obtained and processed using the Kaspersky Security Network (KSN). KSN integrates cloud-based technologies into personal and corporate products and is one of Kaspersky Lab’s most important technologies. Global Kaspersky Security Bulletin for Q2 2013 has been published at Securelist.com.
KSN assists Kaspersky Lab’s experts to swiftly detect new malware in real time when no corresponding signature or heuristic detection exists. KSN helps to identify sources of malware proliferation on the Internet and blocks user access to them.
Due to KSN’s very rapid response to new threats we are able to block new programs from launching on users’ computers within seconds after of them being detected, and without having to update the antivirus database first.
The statistics in this report (except for spam) are based on completely anonymous data obtained from Kaspersky Lab products installed on users’ computers in India and was acquired with the full consent of the users involved.
